Irrigation Maintenance

The irrigation maintenance team at Smart Water operates to ensure that installed irrigation systems are kept in optimal condition for the lifetime of their use. Smart Water’s experienced irrigation technicians can perform irrigation audits, system upgrades, scheduled or irregular maintenance, and emergency repairs for your irrigation system. The irrigation team can perform maintenance throughout Melbourne, Victoria.


For domestic irrigation customers, it is recommended to make an irrigation maintenance booking before the weather warms up so that you can enjoy your garden throughout the summer. Inspecting your irrigation system for any damage, ensuring filters and equipment are in working condition, and checking the health of your irrigation system are important steps to take.


For commercial irrigation customers, it is recommended that you discuss the optimal frequency of maintenance depending on the size, complexity, and use of the irrigation system with the irrigation installation team.
